About Voices of New York

The mission of Voices of New York is to provide youth, educators and parents with media and arts based education programs and services, which promote positive outcomes in school and at home. Youth programs are focused on getting students engaged in their communities and building the critical skills needed for them to succeed in high school and college, using the latest in 21st century learning models. Methods include creative expression exercises, social networking, video production, and other multimedia projects. Educators receive in-classroom support via media study guides, online tools, field-trips and other resources to help integrate our programs into their curriculums. Providing youth mentors and connecting the link between education and the world of work is an important part of our foundation. Parents who seek to improve communication between them and their kids can take part in workshops and round tables, moderated by parents. In addition to these programs and services, the organization will produce events promoting community engagement and raising awareness of social issues.
